My name is Abby Lee and I have recently started Pre-Service Training for the Peace Corps as a Youth Development Volunteer. I have been living in Perú for 21 days in a small town called Huascaran, near the capital city of Lima.

Currently I am living in the coast, but I am definitely getting the itch to explore the mountains and the jungle, and see firsthand the varied topography of this country. There are two official languages in Perú, Spanish and Quechua, which is just one example of the cultural amalgamation of the European hegemony and the Incan Civilization.
